Pop Icon Amy Winehouse Rules The UK Charts

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Amy Winehouse continued her posthumous reign on the new U.K. album chart, published Sunday by the Official Charts Company. `Back To Black` (Universal Island) achieved a second week at No. 1 since her death, in addition to the three it registered in 2007."


Many Amy Winehouse fans have expressed their love and admiration for their fallen idol by leaving cards and flowers at a memorial outside her house. I`m sure that these kind gestures comfort Amy`s family.

But the best way we can pay homage to Amy Winehouse is by buying her albums, and sharing them with others. Don`t disparage the musical tastes of young people, simply introduce them to an Amy Winehouse or an Adele.

Amy won`t rule the charts forever, but she will always have a place in our hearts.
